Staff-student collaboration to enhance digital practices in the disciplines London Met L & T Conference, 2014 Jim Pettiward (CELT eLearning) & Chris O’Reilly (ISS) Photo: www.123rf.com
Aims • Reflect on digital literacies and practices (yours and your students’) • Explore partnerships / collaboration within the disciplines • To raise awareness of the Digital Ambassadors project and Clued Up! resource for students
The way we live, work, communicate, interact and play is evolving rapidly… http://learning.londonmet.ac.uk/epacks/digital-literacies/ …but what about education?
Your Work Spaces Institute of Education: Introducing Spaces and Places
Where we work… Institute of Education: Mapping Spaces and Places
Your work spaces • Think about your own work spaces and devices you use… • Draw a map/diagram showing what devices you use and where you use them. • Compare maps with the person next to you – similarities/differences? • Are there any activities you do with one device in one particular place? E.g. marking at home on laptop?
Digital Literacies “…those capabilities which fit an individual for living, learning and working in a digital society. JISC, 2014 “Digital literacy looks beyond functional IT skills to describe a richer set of digital behaviours, practices and identities. What it means to be digitally literate changes over time and across contexts, so digital literacies are essentially a set of academic and professional situated practices supported by diverse and changing technologies.”JISC, 2014 http://www.jiscinfonet.ac.uk/infokits/digital-literacies/
7 Elements of Digital Literacies http://www.jiscinfonet.ac.uk/infokits/digital-literacies/
Discussion • How has your discipline changed in the last decade as a result of technology? • What do we do as a university to help students develop their digital literacies? • Are there some digital literacies/practices which are generic and some which are subject specific? (example?) • What would a digitally literate graduate in your discipline be able to do?
Rationale for projects • Absence of faculty initiatives • Digital Literacy in strategy/policy documents • New approaches to staff development • Staff / student collaboration • Examples from other institutions
Projects • Support for Digital Literacies which are not subject-specific e.g. Clued Up • ‘Subject-specific’ digital literacies Digital Ambassadors project • Embedding Digital Literacies in the curriculum – CASS Critical & Contextual Studies module
Digital Ambassadors Project • Support student digital literacy development • Co-create workshops and facilitate focus groups • Student – staff partnerships in subject areas • Support staff development of digital practices in their subject areas
Embedding Digital Literacies in the curriculum CASS Critical & Contextual Studies Module Level 4 – Film & Broadcast Production CED project – collaboration between CELT eLearning & specific subject area More effective blended learning + embedding digital literacies into curriculum
"The challenge is perhaps as much cultural as it is practical....We are moving to changes of approach and more collaborative ways of working. Ways that harness the collective skills, knowledge and effort of all those involved in our learning communities, that transform practice to more accurately reflect the way we live and work." (JISC, 2011)
